At Calgary’s Ludwar Law Firm, many of our province-wide clients come to us after having disability claims turned down by insurance companies or by Canada Pension Plan.
The burden is on you to prove that you are disabled. Insurance companies in Alberta and Saskatchewan are not required to conduct their own investigations of your ability to work and often do a poor job of telling you what is needed to prove your disability. So even if you have a doctor's report, your insurance company may not accept it.
Often, the problem is not that you aren't disabled; it's that your evidence isn't considered good enough.
